Vile-rat liked a few of my posts just hours before he died. It feels weird. I'd played with the man a few times, seen him in jabber all the time, and now he's gone, and it feels weird. It's saddening and surreal.

You know I woke up today and heard the embassy news, and I said out loud, "This really sucks but it doesn't affect me much, I just hope we don't go to war again over this." And then I find out Vile Rat was among the dead and I just don't know...

Never met him, never spoke to him, and only knew him as a member of the CSM. But for some reason, the news of his death hit me surprisingly hard. RIP Vile Rat. You will be missed.

A hero of Eve has passed on.

A war that would’ve involved 20,000 players, 75% of nullsec space, and hundreds of supercapitals was halted not by diplomacy, but by a game mechanic so dreadful that those who have experienced it previously have no desire to do so again. - Fix POS & SOV

He was one of the good guys in this world, one of the ones that actually mattered. He did so much for this community while still serving his country and his family.

Rest in peace Vile Rat, save us all a Quafe

If this has been mentioned on here already I am sorry. I also posted this on goon forums

We need a memorial on the undock of the VFK station.

This man was important to the alliance and the CFC as a whole. He was also a CSM and worked hard to improve eve.

I also suggest a PLEX drive to raise money for his family.

There are in history mens and womens that are loved and hated, but always respected.
These are the ones that remain in the history books forever.

In the history book of our little galaxy he will remain one of very few that shaped the course of our entire community.

Now that he became a legend, I humbly offer my deepest respects to family and friends.

I am seriously having trouble concentrating at work. I met him in passing once, as you said barely knew him, but always remembered the name from that short encounter. I also work in IT and all I can think about is how frustrated I get with people in the office for stupid things when it comes to computers, and him having to deal with something similar (though far more advanced) and the looming constant threat as well.

Vile may have contributed immensely to EVE, but supporting international peaceful interests by far outshines his EVE career. I always had an appreciation for the Goon mentality, enjoying the game to the fullest whether is frowned upon or not, and Vile was enjoyment incarnate.

RIP fire?

RIP Vile Rat.

Even a '08 Carebear (me) has heard all about him.

Having heard him tell stories on mumble a number of times I am absolutely shocked to hear this news. RIP Vile Rat, you were one of the best.
